Advocate BroMenn Medical Center

The history of Advocate BroMenn Medical Center dates back nearly 120 years. Five generous, local physicians pooled their resources to open McLean County’s first hospital, and area businesses, leaders and residents followed their lead. Through the years, community members maintained that commitment—investing to support the growth of hospital facilities and programs.

Today BroMenn Medical Center is one of the most advanced acute care facilities in Central Illinois.

Generous donors have helped the hospital fund construction and renovation projects, acquire advanced technology, create innovative programs and win national awards. Now, in an era of declining reimbursements and increasing health needs, charitable gifts are more important than ever in ensuring local access to the very best care.

Funding Priorities

The Advocate BroMenn Service Auxiliary has been an integral part of this community for nearly 90 years. The mission of the Service Auxiliary is to support the hospital by working with staff to raise funds for capital equipment purchases, increase public awareness, and assist with special projects and programs. Your gift to the Service Auxiliary will be used to fund specific enhancements for the Thrift Shop, support programs that retain BroMenn Medical Center physicians, bring speakers to the community, and much more.

McLean County’s only adult behavioral and psychiatric inpatient services and inpatient addiction recovery program will undergo a renovation and expansion in 2020. This will enhance therapeutic environment fostering help, hope, and healing for our patients and their families.

An integrated, preventative health care program for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities providing holistic healthcare services.

Leadership training to enhance the ongoing professional development of BroMenn residents and medical students. Providing skills to lead effective team-based care to our communities.

The President’s Fund provides critical resources to address immediate needs and to support new programs that enhance the quality of care and patient experience. Gifts to this fund allow the flexibility to respond quickly to important new requests and ideas as they arise.
